KNOX CITY—Offense was the name of the game in the season opener for Knox City on Aug. 27. But the Greyhounds came up short on the road at Jayton, losing 46-30.
“This game was a good start-of-the-year test for us, with so many new faces on the field,” said Knox City Head Coach Caleb Callaway. “We played well for about the first 32 minutes, and really showed our youth in the last eight. We were able to get a good look at ourselves and what we need to work on and improve as we move forward with this season.”
Greyhound quarterback Bryson Callaway completed 8 of 13 passes for 73 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception. Caleb Arrieta rushed for 38 yards and a score. Devin Guillory was Knox City’s leading receiver of the night with three catches for 51 yards and a touchdown.
Guillory and Arrieta also both looked good on kickoff returns, averaging 23 yards per return on the night.
Callaway says offensively his team is behind where they have been in past years, but he says that’s to be expected with so many new faces on the field.
“We had five guys who have never started a varsity game make their debut in Jayton,” said Callaway. “We were able to take a hard look at things on film and we are going to be able to make adjustments that fit our guys. I feel confident that we know what we need to work on, and we will see a lot of progress in the coming weeks. Our schedule is designed to point out our weak areas so we can get to work on improving them.”
The Greyhounds are scheduled to play Motley County on Sept. 2.
